Apparently Mayor Eagan tried to stop it (the fear mongering by real estate agents), but failed.

I believe this, glamatomic. In my neighborhood during the late 1960s, real estate agents were actually knocking on our front door for the opportunity to sell our home. I remembering walking into our front room with one of our neighbors who was also an agent telling my parents the exact things. Scare tactics.

You and your family stay safe in Florissant, glamatomic, while all this is happening. I still have family in that area too.

How do you know this- were you there protesting? Also, the way you ask this ? is designed to put people on the defensive. When a ? is asked like that, all it does is lead to defensiveness and disagreement.

The local news showed 9 people in a pickup truck that got arrested last night and half of them were white. I assume they were there to protest.

They were there to cause trouble. There are white people and people of various nationalities who I have seen, talked to and walked with in the daytime protests. I've also seen a few at night... There are some people who can look beyond the race issue and just believe what they believe is right.
